Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Homeschool resources Savannah Pooler

Register for Classical Conversations Free Parent Practicum in Rincon, June 29-July 1 or in Savannah, June 8-10 2015.

What are the benefits of classical, Christian education? How can I give my children a classical, Christian education at home?

Join new and veteran homeschooling parents for three days of encouragement and inspiration as this group seeks to understand the classical model of education and learn how to apply it in Christian homeschooling.

This year, they’ll be digging deeper into understanding the art of inquiry.

Classical Conversations is excited to announce that the 2015 Parent Practicum theme will be science, emphasizing the building nature of science explorations: they lead to understanding and AWE.

The practicum will begin with the grammar stage of curiosity and wonder, through the dialectic, and end with the rhetoric stage of awe in the face of dawning understanding. Wonder to wonder!
